Overview of Compute Project Categories and Links to Submission Forms

Kurzinformation

Please find a tabular description of the available project categories and links to the submission forms below. As an overview the competence network HPC.NRW developed Quick Reference Cards for illustration of the application, approval and allocation process. If you already have a project please consider the information regarding project extensions here. The following figure might help to find the best project category.

 

Prinicipal Investigators (PIs) are supposed to be leading scientists with a doctoral degree or a permanent position who are qualified to also take part in the scientific reviewing process. Only contact data of the Institute are accepted (email, address, etc.). Please do not use your private contact data.

Please note: If the PI uses a trusted email address (fz-juelich or rwth-aachen domain) the submission can be finalized by the PI online (without paper).
Otherwise do not forget to also email a printed, signed and then scanned version of your proposal to hpc-projects@itc.rwth-aachen.de using the mail subject  "Application for Compute Time No. xxxx" after the online submission!

New project categories: Starting with August 1st, 2021 we introduce new project categories. You can apply for project extensions in the old categories until November 30th, 2021 with a maximum project period until June 30th, 2021. Currently running projects will continue as scheduled.

Note: You can apply for GPU resources for every project category. These GPU resources are not accounted in a specific like "GPU hours" metric, but mapped into core hours of the host processors. Applications requesting a higher amount of GPU resources are to be submitted in the corresponding larger project categories (NHR-N, NHR-L, JARA). You can specify the percentage of GPU usage during the application.

(*) Applicants are responsible for providing any necessary software licence, please find more information here.

(**) While technical reviewing and setting up the project typically takes up to one week, scientific reviewing depends on the response time of the reviewers and typically takes about one  month. Therefore an initial quota is set up when the technical review is finished. It is increased as approved by the reviewers.

(***) Systems listed in these column are the defaults for the corresponding category. Please let us know if you have specific requierments for you compute time project (e.g., special system, memory requierments, etc.).

(****) A „call“ for new NHR projects will occur quarterly, with the intention that – for NHR Normal – preliminary resources can be granted quickly, while the final granting decision will be made in conjunction with the final decisions about NHR Large projects by the NHR/NHR4CES panel (meets quarterly). Thus, a belated decrease of computing resources is possible.
